Cohesity – One Software Platform for Multiple Cloud Use Cases

Had the opportunity to be invited from Stephen Foskett (Organizer in Chief at Tech Field Days) – Cloud Field Days at Cohesity – one of the attractive companies covering lot of the Secondary Storage Data including Cloud and supporting AWS, Azure & GCP. Cohesity as Data Platform company is taking care to bring simplicity in your data centers (on-prem & Cloud).

We had high technical presentation and live Demos – yes, live demos never fails in the Cohesity (at least till the last one that we had) with super technical staff: Rawlinson Rivera, Aaron Delp, Sai Mukundan, Jon Hildebrand, Sameer Nori, Dayanand Sharma etc.

Cohesity has lot of the Cloud solution for your Data in the Cloud like: Long-term retention (VM Migration) for Archive Data to the Cloud, Storage tiering to move cold Data to the Cloud, Test/Dev – provision new Apps or move on-prem Apps to the Cloud, Apps mobility across DataCenter & Public Cloud, Full Lifecycle Disaster Recovery for Failover & Failback + Granular Recovery using the Cloud for cost-effective DR, Multi-Cloud mobility so you can move data between clouds, Direct Backup to Cloud, (new) Cloud Native backup to automate backup of Cloud Apps.

So all above are ready based on Cohesity Cloud key capabilities:
Cloud Archive
Cloud Tier
Cloud Replicate
Cloud Edition
Cloud Retrieve
Cloud Spin (new) – spinning up on-prem VMs in the public Cloud, policy based for schedule/setup the backup to be converted and stored in the cloud without need to run Cohesity in the cloud so the VM can be activated in the cloud.
Native API Integration –  Integration with public Cloud snapshot APIs for the native backup of cloud applications.
All of these operations can be done via their super simple GUI just in few clicks and super monitoring dashboards.

So in general Cohesity supports all public Cloud providers like AWS, Azure & GCP so regarding the Cloud it has Dataplatform Virtual Edition for the ROBO/Edge as well as DataPlatform Cloud Edition for AWS, Azure, GCP and Compatible Cloud (S3/NFS). Also you can scale very fast (Web-Scale), it has Global Deduplication, you can Clone and Snapshot in infinite way, Global indexing for all objects, Security and QoS. – One Software Platform for Multiple Cloud Use Cases.

 

I can say that the Cohesity is super player in the Global market to cover your Secondary Storage in anyway that you can imagine!

Recently they just announced the new stuff that is Cohesity Helios – Unified Global Management for Edge/ROBO – onPrem – Virtualization – Cloud & much more.

Stay tuned …
